This release is compiled of field recordings taken from the city of Jiayuguan, Gansu Province, China on August 20th, 2013. The recordings were later set to sounds in Beijing during the 2014 Chinese New Year. The album title in Chinese characters are those of the city's name, however the English titles have been intentionally translated character by character to sound a little odd and represent the sometimes, slightly out of place feeling one can get from visiting a new place for the first time. The four tracks are titled using a single word in both languages that have significance with the content of the song.
The album began as a concept while traveling to perform in the Silk Road · Jiayuguan Great Wall International Music Festival in order to capture the feeling of the city and it's sounds.

这张专辑的采样是2013年在中国甘肃深嘉峪关录制而成。2014年的北京春分时刻thruoutin把这些采样和自己的音乐放在一起。这张专辑叫《嘉峪关》但英文的翻译thruoutin故意反过来把每一个字要不正确的翻译，Fine, Valley, Pass。专辑里每一个歌曲的名字表示歌曲里面的采样。开启这张专辑的出发点是thruoutin在嘉峪关参加“嘉峪关丝路长城音乐节”的时候。更多资料请打开链接：www.chinamusicradar.com/live-music/travel-performance-diary-thruoutin/
Over the span of 2014-2016 Pittsburgh based net label, Aud-Art, arranged a remix project to reissue pieces submitted by producers from around the world including Johnny Jitters (US), Escaping Animals (AUS), Ilkae (CA),
Jana Sleep (SE) illl (SK) and Eigenheimer (NL). The almost linear, ambient characteristic of the 4 track EP was lifted to a new level that incorporates new rhythmic and percussive ideas while simultaneously utilizing the original content. This project, curated by Johnny Jitters himself, has been a work in progress and now is finally available on Aud-Art.
2014-2016年美国匹兹堡数字唱片公司Aud-Art准备把《嘉峪关》这张专辑的歌曲全部由全新的制作人做remix。这些来自各个国家的音乐制作人比如Johnny Jitters (美国), Escaping Animals (澳洲), illl,(斯洛伐克), Ilkae (加拿大), Jana Sleep (瑞典) 与 Eigenheimer (荷兰)。原来的专辑比较线性感和氛围但是remix版本给人从新耳目一新的感觉。这remix的部分是Aud-Art创办人, Johnny Jitters策展的。
